The V6 engine in the Tacoma Prerunner
makes this a spunky vehicle to drive.
V6 is a smooth running engine with the
torque necessary to carry or pull
those weekend loads. Extra cab model
gives the owner that additional
storage space behind the seats which
is definitely a convenience worth
getting. Interior design is good
except for the clock location. Toyota
has met it's usual standards in
quality and reliability. Optional TRD
package allows the driver to select
differential lock at slow speeds which
is definitely helpful in slippery
driving. Tacoma is an all around well
Prerunner is a 2 wheel drive vehicle.
Differential lock has helped me to get
out of slippery snow in the winter but
in my opinion opting to put the V6
into a Tacoma is the smartest thing I
could have done.
Tacoma extra cab model access would be
improved if a third door was
incorporated behind the driver's
door. As is the driver must slide the
seat fully forward to have access to
the cab behind the seats. Clock
location could also be improved.
